Immediately, Putin and his regime must be put under special severe pressure from the West. International organizations and foreign media must see the real situation in Mariupol! A humanitarian corridor is urgently needed to save the people and livelihoods of Mariupol residents, while the Ukrainian army needs massive assistance with weapons! Mariupol must be saved! He must survive! For he is a symbol of our fortitude and invincibility! Glory to Ukraine! Glory to her heroes!"
